  1. Textbox vertical alignment

    It will be nice to align the text vertically in the Textbox. You can do it now only by adjusting the font size and the height of the Textbox.

  3. Pin visual groups (on grouped level) to dashboards

    Hi! Thanks for the grouping feature. An awesome function in that context would be to allow a pin of such grouped visuals to a dashboard (as this group)! I give you one example: We have modelled a "heatmap" using the matrix visual, showing absiolut values in the cells and coloring the cell background (conditional formatting) using a key figure "delta to budget". As it's not 100% iuntutive if the colorization relates to prior month, forecast or budget, we have added a legend in the way that we added an image (showing a mini screenshot of the colorscale) and a textbox…

  5. Share Dataflow Ownership with Workspace Admins

    We need to allow all admins of the workspace in which the dataflow is held to be able to edit the flow. Multiple people contribute to a dataflow at different stages of a project but all need to be able to review, understand and if necessary edit the dataflow

  6. Move Measures Between Tables in New Modelling View

    The new Modelling View was delivered in Nov 2018 and is fabulous. There is already a button to select all measures in a table - great. I would like to then move all the selected measures to another table, either by drag and drop or by selecting the home table in the properties list (just like you can do for formatting).

  8. Change Default Slicer Selection Controls

    The ability to set the default selection controls should be in the Options. When using a Slicer, I want to be able to turn OFF the Multi-select with CTRL and turn ON the Show "Select All" Option. This is the opposite of the current defaults. I would rather set this once for the entire report as the default my preferred method rather than having to change this on each slicer that has these options available.

  10. Group level filter

    Group level filters similar to Visual or Page level filters.

  11. Measure Management & DAX Editor

    Anyone who uses PowerBI long enough has had a PBIX with 50-60 measures and it has become time consuming and tedious to mantain. In Excel you can do a quick find/replace to edit several formulas - in PowerBI you need to select each one individually. An "excel-like" interface for editing measures would save a lot of time! This would take PowerBI to the next level regarding productivity. I've prepared a mockup for this as well as a DAX Editor. Let me know what you think.

  12. Measuring Power BI dataflow

    Power BI dataflows provide a great medium to syndicate sets of data to business units to run analytics. It enables faster access to reporting data.

    While there are highlevel utilization metrics on PBI reports, there is no way to measure dataflow utilization and uptake. It is critical to PowerBI success to understand the number of reports currently connected to any given dataflow and quantity of refreshes. Without a method to measure adoption and utilization of each dataflow, growth and ROI become guessing games.

  13. Export to PDF via Power BI Embedded API

    The export to PDF feature of Power BI Desktop is awesome. Could we have this PDF support option via the embedded API to generate PDFs into a network location? Say, an UNC path. This would be fantastic for bespoke applications!

  17. Allow SSO from Power BI Service to Denodo

    Currently a fix credential is used to configure connectivity from Denodo connector in Data Gateway to Denodo Server. It is not able to capture login user in Power BI service and allow pass through down to Denodo Server so that only authorized rows/dataset is return. Please work on this ASAP as we want to leverage the row level data access control built in Denodo centrally rather than recreating at Power BI level.

  18. R Script in Power BI Report Server

    Enable R Script in Power BI Report Server - In the manufacturing environment quality tools are essential, specific S.P.C. (Statistical Process Control). So, for example Quality Control Charts library help us with statistical data analysis in Power BI Desktop, but in Report Services R Script is not enabled. This is an incredible opportunity to delivery assertive information to data customers make their quick decisions based on Power BI RS. In the other post R Visual is not planned, but think fondly in this possibility!

  19. Enable Parallel Query Submission for Snowflake

    Snowflake is super fast at running queries but PowerBI is slowing dashboards down by executing all the queries serially. Please prioritise work to fix this.

    This following issue about direct queries processing sequentially is related: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Issues/Direct-queries-are-processing-sequentially/idc-p/847026/highlight/true#M50664

  20. Power BI Embeded in Dynamics 365 APP model-driven system form: Export data

    With the new UI from CRM (D365) you can integrate Power BI reports. When exporting in the browser version everything is fine. But this function is currently not working in the Dynamics 365 Application. Customers who only work with application will be limited and have no ability to export there data from the report.

    This has been discussed in a support case and I hope this can get implemented in the future.
